Forse and others v Secarma Ltd and others

Injunction – Interim. In conspiracy to injure by unlawful means proceedings brought by the respondent cyber-security business against the appellants, that included a rival business, the judge had been correct to grant an injunction restraining the appellants from carrying on penetration testing in-house. However, the scope of the injunction had been too wide insofar as it prevented the appellants from carrying on penetration testing and red teaming by outsourcing, as that was their existing business. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appellants' appeal against the grant of a springboard injunction in favour of the respondents, save to the extent that the injunction was too wide in its scope.
